Comparative Approaches to Religion and Violence Unit and Japanese Religions Unit

Call for Papers: 

Trauma, Harm, and Memory in Japanese Religions

This panel addresses ways concepts of harm, trauma, and related matters - including violence, damage, recovery, and reconstruction - have taken shape within Japanese religious milieus. We seek a broad range of disciplinary approaches. Papers may address doctrine, literature, institutional history, material religion (such as memorials) and/or ways religious dimensions of Japanese discourse, care initiatives, or other practices may illuminate categories linked to trauma. We seek work on a range of historical periods, and papers that engage broader theoretical inquiry into genealogies of "trauma”, "harm”, and related concepts are particularly welcome.

Proposals are anonymous to chairs and steering committee members until after final acceptance/rejection
